Scotland international Liam Cooper has been a great servant for Leeds United – and he hit an impressive landmark on Sunday afternoon away to Sheffield United.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side continued their exciting start to life in the Premier League with a late win in the Yorkshire derby.

Patrick Bamford stepped up two minutes from time to secure a second win from three matches.

But for Scotland’s Cooper, he hit his own special Leeds milestone. The Elland Road skipper has been at the club since 2014, with them every step of the way during their ascension up the English league ladder.


And now he’s hit 20 appearances for Leeds following his clean sheet at Bramall Lane. Over 10 years after making his Premier League debut for Hull City, it was a nice landmark for Cooper to hit.

He’s enjoyed a positive start to the season after overcoming a minor muscle injury. He’ll hope that feeling continues into the international break when Scotland contest the Euro 2020 play-off matches next month.
